ITINERARY CHANGES Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It is important that you review this information prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays, or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in-country. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary seasonally to ensure our travellers have the best experience. Your tour leader will keep you up to date with any such changes once on tour. OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability, and maybe on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your leader know you are interested in the Group Meeting and they can assist. Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high-risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk. DEMONSTRATIONS & STRIKES: Demonstrations and protests, often in response to local labour or social issues, occur regularly in Peru. National strikes can be called at short notice and can cause disruption to road networks leading to inevitable itinerary changes. We will do everything possible for these changes to be at little or no extra cost; however in such circumstances we find that travellers may need to use their contingency funds to cover the costs of itinerary changes.

Day 1 - Puerto Maldonado
Welcome to Puerto Maldonado, Peru! If you are flying into Puerto Maldonado International Airport (AKA Padre Aldamiz International Airport) a lodge representative will welcome you at the airport and transfer you to the lodge’s office in town (approximately 15 minutes by van). Here you will pack any items you will need over the next few days into a duffle bag provided by the lodge. The remainder of your belongings will be securely stored in the office. From here, travel by motorised canoe to your lodge. Once you arrive at the lodge there is time to unpack and unwind before an afternoon walk to the Canopy Tower, a 30-meter scaffolding canopy tower that offers spectacular views of the forest and Tambopata River. You will have good chances of spotting toucans, parrots and macaws from here. Head back to the lodge for dinner. After dinner, venture into the jungle for a guided night walk with your guide.  
Day 2 - Amazon Lodge
Wake at dawn to the sound of bird calls and travel by boat and foot to the oxbow lake after breakfast. Cruise around the lake and keep an eye out for turtles, hoatzin and other local species of birds. In the afternoon, venture out on a jungle walk, keeping an eye out for wildlife while learning from a local guide about the many resources the Amazon provides, from medicine to construction and food. Head back to the lodge later in the day where you're free to relax.
Day 3 - Amazon Lodge
Rise early this morning and head out after breakfast to visit the Parrot Clay Lick, which is around a 20-minutes walk from the lodge. From an observation spot located about 20 metres away, you should see dozens of parrots and parakeets descend on most clear mornings to ingest the clay on the riverbank. Continue on a hike through the Ceiba Trail to see the largest tree in the vicinity. In the afternoon, visit a working farm in the community of Infierno. Your evening is free to relax and unwind among nature.
Day 4 - Puerto Maldonado
Your Peru Jungle Experience ends this morning. After breakfast return to Puerto Maldonado and transfer back to the airport.
